Scripture: 2 Chronicles 13:4-5, Matthew 28:18, 5:13

2 Chronicles 13:4-5 says, “Then Abijah stood on Mount Zemaraim, which is in the mountains of Ephraim, and said, ‘Hear me, Jeroboam and all Israel: Should you not know that the Lord God of Israel gave the dominion over Israel to David forever, to him and his sons, by a covenant of salt?’” When Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth…” what is He referring to? He is referring to God’s covenant, which confers dominion on David, his sons and his generations. The covenant of salt was given to David and his house and it lasts forever. The Throne of David was guaranteed by salt, and it is the Throne Christ sits on. Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” That dominion is guaranteed by the covenant of salt. But we have to enter into the covenant, appropriate it and act on it. Jesus believed 2 Chronicles 13:5 and He declared it in Matthew 5:13. Will we believe it and act on it? I trust we will, in Jesus’ name!
